The mission of the Fundraising Department is to support Liverpool Cathedral in becoming self sufficient; in order to maintain its vision of being a safe place to do risky things in Christ’s service. Liverpool Cathedral does not receive any funding from the Government or the diocese and relies on donations, which in turn are used to support ongoing developments and new initiatives within the Cathedral; focussing on mission, music and liturgy, arts and heritage.
There are numerous ways to support the Cathedral some of which are listed below,
if you would like to speak to someone regarding making a donation please contact the Fundraising office during office hours on
Tel: 0151 702 7226 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will be happy to assist you. Whether it be a one off donation (using the donation form downloadable from this page) or setting up a regular gift, we can help with advice and appropriate forms. We will also be able to help ensure that any such gift is made as tax efficiently as possible – not just for our sake, but for yours too!
Are you a UK tax payer? If so, you can use Gift Aid to make your donations go further. By Gift Aiding your donation, the Cathedral will be able to claim for and receive an additional 25p from HMRC for every £1 donated. If you would like to add Gift Aid to your donation please complete the declaration form downloadable from this page and send it to Liverpool Cathedral Foundation together with your donation.
Shares and Traded Funds
We are also able to accept gifts of shares in companies or funds traded on any recognised stock exchange. This type of gift also provides benefits to the donor. Under present Inland Revenue rules, if you make such donations, you receive relief from Income Tax in that year to the amount of the gift. Additionally, as you personally will not be realising any capital gain on the shares, the Inland Revenue will also give Capital Gains Tax Relief. Please contact the Fundraising Office to discuss this type of gift.
Self Assessment Tax Returns
If you make your own Tax Returns under the Self Assessment procedures, and you find that you have overpaid your tax, you can choose to donate the overpaid tax to a charity instead of reclaiming it. To do this, you need to elect to claim the repayment at Q.19 on the form and then to opt to have Liverpool Cathedral Foundation as the beneficiary instead of yourself by including our charity identifier DAL68KG at Q.19A on the form. We would be happy to explain more or to talk you through this if you contact the Fundraising Office.
Making a will is straightforward and ensures your wishes are honoured and can be financially comforting to those people close to you. Leaving a legacy to a charity can have a huge impact. Leaving a special gift like this to Liverpool Cathedral can really make a difference to the future of our magnificent building and this eclectic community. If you would like to consider leaving a legacy to Liverpool Cathedral please contact the Fundraising Office and a member of our team will be happy to help you.
